After the event, Dr. Isa had the opportunity to be a speaker in a guest lecture for undergraduate and postgraduate students which was conducted in a hybrid manner in the Auditorium on the 8th floor. He conveyed the role of local livestock nutrition industry companies in enhancing the nation’s image. This is in line with Indonesia’s low entrepreneurship ratio coupled with the increasing export of livestock products. According to him, it is necessary to instill strong foundations and courage to start an entrepreneur, especially in the livestock sector.

The next session was an introduction to the premix industry delivered by the Plant Operational Manager, Agung Susilo Wahyudi, S.Pt. He said that premix is divided into two, namely basic premix and functional premix. In the future, custom premix will be excellent among breeders because it is a material that is specifically requested based on the problems that exist in the laying hen coop.

The guest lecture was guided by Danung Nur Adli, M.Sc., according to him, lectures with practitioners were important for students to keep abreast of developments in science and technology. Because when they only get theory in lectures, students only know small opportunities, and underestimate sales jobs. In fact, building a career as an entrepreneur requires building a leadership spirit, expanding the network, and updating field conditions. (dta/Humas UB/ Trans. Iir)
